1984 Porsche 944 from North America
Replace timing belt and all rollers.
Replace water pump.
The 944 is sometimes referred to as "the poor mans Porsche", but for me, it is a wonderful and exciting car to own and operate.
The only problem I have with this car is, I cannot keep it under the speed limit.
It just wants to GO!!!
The handling is super, on highways or on country roads.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I don't know as I agree with the 944 as being referred to as the, "Poor man's Porsche." The 924 & 914 maybe, but not the 44'.
Mainly because of the genuine all aluminum Porsche motor.
If anyone ever comments that they think your car is of the "poor man" variety, just say, "Try being poor and maintaining this thing!"
